Our school milk scheme
At Ladywood Primary School we use Cool Milk Ltd to manage our school milk scheme. We order free milk for all children who are eligible for benefit related free school meals. All children under the age of 5 also automatically receive free milk, under 5's will receive free milk until the Friday before their 5th birthday.
Our milk scheme is available to all of our pupils, and we would encourage you to register your child. School milk is free for under-5s, and for over-5s it is available at a subsidised* price of 28pence per day.
Each child that registers with Cool Milk will receive a 189ml portion of semi-skimmed milk every day, delivered fresh and chilled to the classroom. Their school milk will not only provide them with essential nutrients, but as it is rehydrating and energy boosting it also bridges the gap between breakfast and lunch to help children stay focused. For more information on how milk can benefit children visit www.coolmilk.com/why-milk-is-great.
